Ain’t B’s Cinnamon Bread


The Old Farmer’s Almanac


1 9×5-inch loaf

Bread Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons white vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

Topping Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons white sugar
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • ¼ cup pecans, optional


Preheat oven to 350º F. Grease one 9×5 inch loaf pan.
In large mixing bowl add the bread ingredients, beat 3 minutes. Pour into prepared loaf pan. Smooth top.
Combine topping ingredients, mixing until crumbly. Sprinkle topping over smoothed batter. Using knife, cut in a light swirling motion to give a marbled effect. Sprinkle top with crushed pecans.
Bake for about 50 minutes. Test with toothpick: when inserted it should come out clean. Remove bread from pan to rack to cool.
